Outside of a STRAY shower Thursday, there is no real opportunity for rain or a cool down tomorrow and that trend continues through the weekend.

One silver lining for the next couple of days will be slightly lower dewpoint values, so it will only feel somewhat sticky, not completely oppressive as a weak cold front scoots through Thursday and Friday.

Friday will be mostly sunny and dangerously hot with possible record highs around 100°. It will be a little less humid in the wake of the weak cold front, so the heat index will only be around 100°. Since it is still VERY hot you will need to find ways to stay cool and hydrated.

Weekend Outlook: The ridge of high pressure will start to build back to the west. Alabama will be on the eastern edge of it, and it will weaken a little bit this weekend. There will be a few weak upper-level waves moving from north to south across Alabama each day. This will help to set off a stray shower or storm on Saturday with hot high temperatures in the upper 90s. There will be a little better chance for afternoon storms on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the mid 90s. Sheesh! It is going to be a hot weekend!
